FORECAST:

 

The CHAMPION Juggernauts are a tough start for the Assassins. Brees and company look to 4peat. The Assassins are counting on Cam’s ribs to feel good enough for a monster game.

 

FBG:

JUGGERNAUTS – It’s rare indeed to be better than the average team at the three core positions, but we think this team is.

ASSASSINS – Your receivers are the strongest part of this team. Players we particularly like on this team include Dwayne Allen, DeAndre Hopkins, Benny Cunningham…

FORECAST:

 

With Lattimore the Snickers should be able to cruise past the Panthers…next year…déjà vu. The Panthers and RGIII to AJ Green start out 1-0.

 

FBG:

Snickers – Overview: Your receivers are the strongest part of this team. While no team can be expected to be above average at all three core positions, you are in the precarious position of being a bit weak at two of them.

Panthers – WR Summary: Nice work here. We like both your starting receivers, as our projections indicate they give you a combined 1.1 point per game advantage

FORECAST:

 

Monsters have Geno… well at least MJD is back.  The 8 Balls look to extend their winning streak vs the Geno lead Monsters. Charles could be enough. Welcome to the party Sean.

 

FBG:

Monsters-Overview: Let us say this as nicely as we can. This team is brutal. It is below average and/or too thin at all three core positions

8BALLS – We think you’re looking good at quarterback and running back.

FORECAST:

 

Weyrmen lost both to the Jockeys last year and the year before. This year it’s the BONECRUSHERS and the Weyrmen hope their luck has changed. A-Rodgers, Lacy and the rest of the Packers look to make this Viking fan a winner. Tannehill and Clay hope to continue the dominance started by the JOCKEYS.

 

FBG:

Weyrmen-RB Summary: Nice work here. We like both your starting backs

Bonecrushers – Let’s start by remarking that we appreciate your old-school leanings: you have a team marked by strength at the running back position.

FORECAST:

 

Can Peyton do it again in week 1? If he does will Beantown hold on to win. The Brawlers do have a big advantage at RB (on paper) at least.

 

FBG:

Brawlers – Bottom line: This team is a lock to go to the playoffs.

Beantown – We’ll start by complimenting you on your strength at quarterback, receiver, and tight end.

FORECAST:

 

The Guns are lead by a rejuvinated Kenny. Now that Michael Sam has found a home Kenny is happy. Romo is a fantasy stud and Lynch is a workhorse. Can Patterson score enough? Not likely.

 

FBG:

Top Guns – QB Summary: We have Tony Romo rated #11 among quarterbacks, which makes him a viable starter if not an exciting one

BOUNTY HUNTERS –  …to turn this team into a legitimate contender. The best way to achieve that might be to sacrifice some of your wide receiver strength to gain multiple players that can help your roster now

FORECAST:

 

This looks to be a good game. Brady vs Luck. Gangsters with a RB who will play and an explosive TY. Don’t think Mike Evans will be enough, yet.

 

FBG:

Suds-Your deficiencies are likely to show themselves through the bye weeks.

Gangsters – QB Summary: We expect Andrew Luck to be a solid starter. According to our projections, he’s the #4 QB.

FORECAST:

 

Axemen lost in MNM FANTASY BOWL XXV and the addition of Veron Davis is huge. But this DOOM team is still loaded. All Day and Dez all monsters.

 

FBG:

Axemen: Your squad is therefore easy for us to like despite being a bit of weakness at the receiver position.

LoDOOM: Congratulations! You seem to have grabbed quality players at every turn…You must be among the favorites in this league and have positioned yourself to grab one of the playoff spots.
